Beautiful You by Chuck Palahniuk
Beautiful You

Jose Juarez, September 30, 2015

Beautiful You turned out to be real entertaining for me.
Penny is a fresh out of law school beautiful girl looking for her role in life. She gets caught up in a life of pleasure and seduction when she meets C. Linus Maxwell. An evil genius who plans out world domination through the pleasuring of women with sex toys, drinks, and Nanobots. All created for the purpose of enslaving females worldwide. The story has the right touch of comedy, sometimes not precisely on purpose but comical none the less. It's highly entertaining with a right mixture of sci-fi tones and clever writing. It's a straight forward entertaining read. If your not a fan of Chuck Palahniuk, you will be.

On Writing by Charles Bukowski
On Writing

Jose Juarez, August 19, 2015

An endearing look into the mind of Charles "the Buk" Bukowski. Filled with truths and the most elegant rants you've probably ever read. It is a hilarious page turner; classic to Bukowskis being. Like his novels you'll feel that you are hanging out with him and that he never left. Bukowski's letters (and Stories) are the epitome of how a person can live on even after they are gone. A fun read. Thanks, Linda Bukowski, for continuing Bukowski's legacy.

I read an excerpt of Chads new book and I Could tell that it is just creative and entertaining as his two previous books. Five stars! Can't wait to have his new book in my hands to pick up where I left off. A must read of the summer!
See* The Average American Male (hilarious!) And The Lie (cruel and hilarious!)

Daemon by Daniel Suarez

Jose Juarez, May 28, 2011

Computers and thrillers not really my thing; read. But this book is well worth the time. Awesome characters. Starts of a bit bit slow but quickly captures your attention and the readers want to know what's next. Movie is in the works but absolutely everybody should know by now that movies don't always do justice to exceptional novels and books. Just read it break out of your mindset and read something new or different!

The Return by Roberto Bolano
The Return

Jose Juarez, May 3, 2011

Awesome stories that are seemingly about nothing but end with gut feeling that there is more to it. Their simple complex and imaginiative!
